Death Rides the Midnight Owl

A Dorothy Parker Mystery

Agata Stanford

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Bomb-throwing anarchists, reds, a famous socialist muckraker, a millionaire couple, a little old lady, and a bunch of ukulele-playing Harvard boys are passengers on the Midnight Owl train out of Boston's South Station, along with Dorothy Parker and her friends.  The train whistle that announces the departure at one minute past midnight on August 23, 1927, also sounds the death knell for two Italian immigrants, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, as they are led, each in turn, on their walk to the electric chair.  But it was not only the two convicted men who were to die that night.
Buy your ticket for a ride on the Midnight Owl with Dorothy Parker and her partner-in-crime-solving, Robert Benchley.   Uncork the champagne and kick up your heels for a Charleston on the lawn of Last Call, a palatial estate on Long Island's North Shore, and tag along with the Marx Brothers as they wreak havoc at Tiffany's in pursuit of a murderer. All aboard!
